A Log-Barrier Method for Mesh Quality Improvement [chapter]

Shankar P. Sastry, Suzanne M. Shontz, Stephen A. Vavasis
2011 Proceedings of the 20th International Meshing Roundtable  
The technique can be used with convex or nonconvex quality metrics. The method uses a logarithmic barrier function and performs global mesh quality improvement.  ...  Our method usually yields better quality meshes than existing methods for improvement of the worst quality elements, such as the active set, pattern search, and multidirectional search mesh quality improvement  ...  The work of the third author was supported in part by a Discovery grant from NSERC (Canada) and a grant from the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research.  ...

PPD-IPM: Outer primal, inner primal-dual interior-point method for nonlinear programming [article]

Martin Neuenhofen
2018 arXiv   pre-print
So far all algorithms for NLP are based on either of the following three principles: successive quadratic programming (SQP), active sets (AS), or interior-point methods (IPM).  ...  These are in order: iteration complexity, feasibility management in the sub-program, and utility of initial guesses. Our novel approach attempts to overcome these drawbacks.  ...  The problem however with ASM is that there is no polynomially efficient method for determining the optimal active set A.  ...
